National Sporting Associations get coordinators

Aug 25, 2010, 4:59 PM | Article By: Lamin Darboe

Thirteen National Sporting Associations in the country yesterday nominated Musa Koteh and Musa P. Manneh, as their Coordinator and Assistant Coordinator in a meeting held at Kanifing Municipal Council Conference Hall.

Koteh is the President of the Gambia Weigh Lifting Association and has once again been honoured with another leadership role along side his colleague Musa P. Manneh, who is also nominated to serve as an assistant in the newly established sporting association, formed by all national associations in the country.

This development came about in the wake of a leadership tussle concerning the vacant positions of President and Secretary-General at the Gambian National Olympic Committee.

The Assistant Coordinator of the Association, Musa P. Manneh, said since the Gambia National Olympic Committee (GNOC) has not elect the President and Secretary-General, this will give the newly established sporting associations union the unique opportunity to do all efforts to select the President and Secretary-General in accordance with the constitution.
